I'm not too familliar with this, so if this makes no sense, please disregard =)...

my friend was telling me that his Mistubishi 4G63T has a palm-pilot program which he can download and plug into the ECU, allowing him to monitor all sorts of things (fuel/air, injector presure, oil pressure, etc).. I was wondering if there's such a thing for the focus?

I asked another friend, and he said it's standard on some computer chip that most cars use... he wasn't sure the name of the chip.. i am wondering if anything like this is avaiable for the focus?

peace.
RIP Jam Master Jay.

Yep, this is also possible with the Foci. All you need to do is get your Foci connected to a computer (or palm) through OBDII port (down below steering wheel, above the pedals).

http://www.obd-2.com/

sells a softie for notebooks (or desktops if you like) and I know some company makes this stuff for palms. Do a search on the jet (for OBDII scanning) as this has been discussed before...

Also there is:

Auterra OBDII Proggie for Palm applications

AutoTap (PC or Palm)

I have both the OBD-2 software for PC (in previous post) and the Auterra for my Palm unit.

OBDII is a standard for all 1996 and newer cars (most do have it, however some makes don't in the 96-98 timeframe). It is both a standard language and format of output, along with a standardized port structure (however some different makes use differing Pin configurations).
